You know that old saying? - One man's meat is another man's poison.

If you read through the posts here over time, you'll find some Bob-bashing, complaints about Keith, some can't stand Pig, Donna is in line for special vitriol, and heaven forbid - even God himself (Jerry) will get criticism. It's sort of like the special way a family shows its love - the more you know about your loved ones, the more you can find to pick at and argue about.

We're just as dysfunctional as our favorite band. Enjoy the ride.

and some people even think Billy didn't add much, which I can't fathom, and that Phil should never sing (lots of evidence to support that).

Okay, well I guess I'll try and not let it get to me. Some of us Brent fans are pretty sensitive you know.

But it always reminds me of the time I took a friend of mine to his first Dead show in the mid 80's. (I had subjected him to countless hours of Dead music prior to this, so he knew a lot of the songs), but to my surprise the ONE song that really turned him around and created a full blown Deadhead was "Don't Need Love". No one was more surprised than me. It was not a great version of the song and from where we were sitting, we could barely hear it. But for him it was the start of a very long, strange trip.

Now if you want to start on (what my wife and I call) Bobby's Mexican Hat Dance music, I'm right with you on that one.
